Farmers can apply for assistance through a 100% government subsidy on the cost of fencing material. The provision of field fencing will be modeled around an enclosed drift fence concept to exclude animals from arable fields. This assistance is provided through The Integrated Support Programme for Arable Agriculture Development (ISPAAD).
